We define legal translation as the translation of legal documents drafted by notaries, attorneys and other lawyers. That is what we are good at and where our expertise lies.
Please note that we don’t translate birth certificates, marriage certificates and other civil registry documents, diplomas, passports, driving licences, residence permits, bank statements, pay slips, tax forms and similar documents.
You can find more information about the type of documents we translate on our ‘Specialisms’ pages.
We translate all your legal documents from Dutch into English, French, German, Italian and Spanish, and from any of these languages into Dutch.

‘All-Round’ is not just a name – it’s our mission!
As a specialist in legal translations we work only with sworn translators. Our sworn translators are highly trained language experts and professional specialists with many years’ experience in translating legal and financial documents. They not only have a perfect command of language but also in-depth knowledge of all aspects of notarial practice and other legal disciplines.
All our sworn translators are included on the official Register of Sworn Interpreters and Translators (RBTV), which is administered by the Dutch Ministry of Justice and Security.
Quality is everything. A legal translation must always be perfect: there is no margin for error. We therefore select the very best translators with the specialist knowledge needed for your document. And we devote the greatest possible care and attention to every translation we produce.
We do so by working in teams. Every translation is the product of at least two specialist translators: one translator who actually translates the text and a second translator who acts as ‘revisor’, responsible for the final document. The revisor ensures that there are no errors or omissions, and that the correct terminology has been used consistently throughout. He or she will check matters of style and interpretation, and will even ensure that the layout is in accordance with your wishes. We leave nothing to chance.
Because producing a good legal translation requires not only linguistic ability but also legal knowledge, we work exclusively with professional specialists. Every legal translator and revisor who works on our legal translations has many years’ practical experience and a thorough knowledge of the relevant legal and judicial systems.
When you read a text you have written yourself, it is all too easy to miss little errors and omissions. Even the very best copywriters make occasional typing mistakes. As translators, we are reading your text with a ‘new pair of eyes’ and will sometimes notice irregularities that have escaped your attention (and that of even the best spellchecker). Perhaps you have typed ‘county’ where you meant ‘country’. Or you may have omitted an all-important ‘not’. This can have embarrassing – and expensive – consequences.
We therefore provide constructive feedback about your text.
There is no extra charge – it’s all part of our service.
We use the latest technological resources to maximize the efficiency of the translation process. The most important are known as Computer-Assisted Translation, or ‘CAT’ tools.
We use Trados Studio 2022, an advanced translation memory management tool which ensures the consistent use of terminology. Because it saves time, it also helps to reduce costs.
In addition, we have our own unique terminology database which has been developed over the course of decades. It contains a wealth of definitions and translations of specialist terms. Some terms are a matter of client preference: one company might refer to its ‘managing director’, while another has a ‘CEO’. These preferences are also recorded in the database, which is constantly being updated.
